Who we are
ZOV is a children’s charity that works with children’s institutions in Bulgaria. ZOV means appeal in Bulgarian and we fund long term projects that help the children to lead happy, stable lives and fulfil their potential. Our aim is to help children living in institutional care achieve independent living by improving welfare and educational support with activities and individual mentoring provided by students from a local university and ZOV staff.
Sometimes it takes a while for a child who has grown up in institutional care to become independent. As well as providing welfare, educational support and helping them to prepare for life outside the home we make sure we support each child until they feel secure and independent.
